New episode (2.5)

, by link6616

It’s not a good recording, and was recorded with a new program as Skype Call Recorder didn’t work so well for us (it ate two attempted casts). So I’m not going to bother adding a start up or send off to this episode, or even editing. It’s just a lot of silliness, and below our usual standards, but you might get a laugh out of it.

  • “Just frame” walking
  • More fighting-games
  • Echo!
  • Balanced Brawl (please note that any and allĀ informationĀ I said could be wrong)
